Today I had to go to the base to pick up a prescription and I had to drive past where the horses are kept. I didn’t actually see the horses, and it wasn’t until I was past the road that leads to the stables that I even thought of it, but once I passed by there, I began to think of horses (like I always do when I drive that road on base).
I have wanted to own a horse since I was a little girl and although I have never had the opportunity to own a horse, that desire has never gone away. I would still love, someday, to own a horse and live on 5 acres of property out in the country.
If I owned a horse, and if I got to choose my horse from all different kinds of horses, I think that my horse would be a Bay and would look like this:
They are very intelligent too. When the kids were little we were staying in a motel that was right next to a pasture full of about 20 or more horses. We would take carrots out every day to feed the horses, but only one horse would venture over to the fence to get the carrots, the rest stayed at a safe distance just watching us. So we told the one horse that if he brought all of his friends with him tomorrow that we would be back with carrots and apples too. Do you know that when we approached the fence the next day (with our carrots and apples) that EVERY SINGLE horse came to greet us at the fence! I know that horse from the day before went and told all his friends that there were apples in it for them if they would come to the fence! 🙂
There’s another kind of horse that I think is soooo beautiful, but I don’t know if I’d want to own one because it is a very spirited horse. Most of the time I would choose a spirited animal over a docile, sedentary one….but with horses, I just really like the quarter horse….they are easy to ride and more suited to me. This spirited horse is an Arabian….
Maybe one day….soon! 🙂
